    Video Game Testing Eliminates Your Passion For Gaming

    From Redditor u/QuinnRMonroe:

    Video game testing. I had a boyfriend who did it for several years, so I know all too well that it's a horrible job. You play the same five minutes of the game over and over again, hundreds of times (sometimes thousands). The job kinda wiped out his passion for gaming, and as far as I know, he still doesn't play anything for fun.

    Veterinarians Are Overworked, Underpaid, And Underappreciated

    From Redditor u/Crazyboutdogs:

    Veterinarian: overworked, underpaid, underappreciated. Extraordinarily high rate of taking their own lives.

    People think it's hugging puppies and kittens and doing it ALL for the love of animals. Then get p*ssed when they actually expect to be paid and call them heartless money-grubbing pet killers when they can’t afford to treat their pet.

    Dog Grooming Isn't Just Playing With Dogs All Day

    From Redditor u/HeyHeyItsJay:

    Dog groomer here. So many people say, “You get to play with dogs all day!” Okat, you wanna squeeze a dog's [butt]? Get bit and scratched? Get yelled at by owners? Wrestle with dogs through the washer and dryer? And of course the sh*t, p*ss, and vomit.

    Architects Are Always Stressed And Tired

    From Redditor u/RandomRavenclaw87:

    Architect. Seems like lots of good rom-com boyfriends are architects. In reality, the hours are long, the stress is extremely high, and pay is really poor for a skilled professional.

    Chefs Work Hard For Very Little

    From Redditor u/Kennethrjacobs2000:

    Chef. Lots of getting screamed at; it takes a really big person not to pass that down the line. Lots of work, lots of expertise, little pay, little appreciation. Of the multiple chefs I know, all of them drink.
